Nice impression of the 70-200mm L lens SnS. I won't discuss the Dutch school system, I'm finally done for this year, so I don't want to think about it for a while
As I've mentioned before, I tried the Sony 70-200mm in a local photography store, and I noticed the weight too. In a positive way though, the bigger, the heavier, the better! My arms are strong enough to walk around with the 1.3kg lens for a quite a while. Gotta save a little longer though...
BTW: the 70-200mm F4 from Canon has a smaller max. aperture, but it's sharpness is said to be similar to primes, so extremely good. That's something to take into consideration (together with the price) if you don't intend to use F2.8 too much anyway!
